Watford’s Premier League season continued with a two-two draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Boxing Day.

Chelsea were ahead just past the half hour when Diego Costa broke through but when Nemanja Matic handballed Troy Deeney made it one-all before half time from the penalty spot before Odion Ighalo put Watford ahead in the second half.

Midway through the second half Costa drew Chelsea and that’s how it ended but only after Oscar missed the chance to win it for the Blues late on when he missed a penalty!

These were the other results.

Saturday 26th December 2015
Stoke 2-0 Man Utd
Aston Villa 1-1 West Ham
Bournemouth 0-0 Crystal Palace
Chelsea 2-2 Watford
Liverpool 1-0 Leicester
Man City 4-1 Sunderland
Swansea 1-0 West Brom
Tottenham 3-0 Norwich
Newcastle 0-1 Everton
Southampton 4-0 Arsenal

Some ‘Christmas crackers’ weren’t there!

The pressure was pilled on Man United boss Louis van Gaal even more with another defeat, slumping to a two-nil defeat at Stoke with Norwich, victorious over United the weekend before it was back down to earth with a bump losing three-nil at Spurs!

Liverpool ended their own poor run with a win over Christmas Day leaders Leicester who, in something of a rarity failed to score in a one-nil defeat at Anfield.

Arsenal blew their chance to stamp their authority on a title challenge, following the win over Man City before this (who got back to winning ways thrashing Sunderland), when they were battered in a shocking four-nil defeat at the St Mary’s Stadium!
